In this urban project realized in 2013, the glass paver has proved to be an excellent response to the technical,
functional and aesthetic constraints of the Seura architectural firm.
The installation of two glass bridges made it possible to reconcile the fragmented neighborhoods
by the passage of the A7 motorway.
« Light is a fundamental element
Glass allows to work on fingerprint systems and create
interesting games of transparency and light.. »
Florence Bougnoux, Seura Architectes.
The imprint imagined by the architect and made by La Rochère design office represents a leaf. Frosted areas allow the water
to flow and guarantee pedestrians comfort and safety of use..
Light and airy,
the glass pavement avoids a shadow effect too important for users
of the motorway arriving in Marseille.
With to custom-made glass paving panels, we obtain a thinner secondary frame that allows maximum transparency underneath
and offers a generous footbridge above for pedestrians and bicycles.
« La Rochère is not only a listening and a technical support but also this respect for the design of the architect.».
Florence Bougnoux, Seura Architects.
